Two boys, 14, arrested after dad knifed to death in street protecting daughter
The Mirror says: Two teenagers have been arrested in connection with the murder of a man who was protecting his daughters.
James ‘Jamie’ Markham, 45, was stabbed to death in Chingford, North East London on Monday, August 9.
His devastated wife, Candice, told the Mirror earlier how Dad Jamie went to protect daughter Chloe before being fatally stabbed in Chingford Mount.
“The boys were walking around with metal poles. They were swinging them and shouting at my daughter,” said a tearful Candice.
“It’s just disgusting. It’s not the first time – you see them walking around and smashing bottles in the street.
“Just doing what they like, there’s no police.”
The dad was knifed after confronting a group of youths in the street, according to Met Police detectives.
On Wednesday, a 14-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of his murder, the force said in a statement on Wednesday.
A second boy, also 14, was also arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.
Both are in custody at an east London police station.
